HAMBURG, GERMANY (June 12, 2019) – Glassdoor, one of the world’s largest job and recruiting sites, has announced today that it has opened its first office in Germany, located in downtown Hamburg. With a German team on site, the company, globally headquartered in the San Francisco Bay Area, will further expand its products and services for job seekers and employers in Germany. The new office will initially be home to communications, marketing, and sales experts and the office will continue to grow.
Glassdoor offers employers a range of recruiting solutions, including job advertising, job posting and employer branding products. The German Glassdoor office builds on a large base of business clients, including Continental, SAP, Bayer, Zalando, Siemens, Puma and Deutsche Bank. The Hamburg team includes account managers to support existing clients as well as to further develop the business with recruiting solutions.
“With demand outpacing supply for highly skilled workers in Germany, now is the right time for Glassdoor to put teams on the ground to connect the right people with the right employers,” said John Lamphiere, Glassdoor Vice President and Managing Director of EMEA. “Job seekers are increasingly conscious of the career decisions they make and our platform allows them to not only find a job in the first place, but also obtain detailed information about future employers before deciding where to work. No other platform offers such a depth of information on a global scale, combined with jobs, as Glassdoor.”
